You don't have the option to, though maybe a mod do or can, except, I recall there being a decision say no to preserve the archives for the history of the board.

Generally usernames won't be changed to keep a necessary level of consistency on the forum. You can request thread title changes, but it's up to the mod in question. I'd personally avoid changing the titles of older established threads, but for things like typos or rephrasing newer thread titles for clarity, I don't mind.

I'm thinking of requesting the "Link Dump" thread title for review. Maybe just Link Collection or something similar, as well as a name change if at all possible, although to something similar to what I have now to not cause much trouble.

I'd consider a very minor change, after all I used to be 'Adair' once upon a time, and boy that just does not look right. Problem with username changes is that once you do one, then everybody wants to change and then suddenly no one knows who anyone is anymore. The spirit behind the rule is to prevent that.

Okay, thanks. Let me know if there are any other problems.
